I know of many ceremonies, e.g. naming ceremony, wedding ceremony, graduation ceremony and burial ceremony. But this new ceremony that is gaining popularity day by day is puzzling to me. It is the proposal ceremony that is making waves that I tend not to understand.
Now, for you to propose marriage to a girl you may need to call a band and hire a convoy. You will need to make a panorama and must employ the service of a professional photographer who must not miss out any details.
You may need to invite friends and family to the occasion and who may also invite their friends to the proposal ceremony. You may choose to do it in an eatery or at Shoprite, since that is some people’s Mecca now. To make it grand, you may rent a hall. You will need a caterer who will take care of the feeding of your guests. I learnt that some even call the media to cover the ceremony.
With the soaring popularity of proposal ceremony, I will advise any MC with foresight to go and master the proceedings of the ceremony. This is Nigeria, very soon you will start seeing signboards every angle with the inscriptions: ‘Let us plan your proposal ceremony for you’, ‘Call us for your proposal ceremony’, ‘Have you done your proposal ceremony? Now is the time, call us on 080…..’ etc….
